It is remarkable how air travelers choose luggage for trips. Some might find that luggage is often heavy because these people are moving their belongings from one location to another and want to save the expense of hiring a rental truck to move it. Airlines are very generous on the amount of luggage that an air passenger can have and the poundage of each piece of luggage that they can place on an aircraft.
When families choose luggage for a family vacation trip, they will normally choose luggage that matches and fits their travel needs. The baggage they select will have to be deep enough to accommodate hair dryers, multiple pairs of shoes and enough clothing for each day that they will be gone on a trip. Some families combine larger items into one large piece of luggage and will choose to carry some equipment onboard the aircraft at every stop.
Business travelers consider the baggage that they carry while traveling by air very carefully. One of the pieces of baggage that is always carried onboard an aircraft will be the garment bag that contains all of the business suits for a trip. They will often select baggage that is on wheels that can accommodate these garment bags and make them easy to transport from one airport terminal to another.
Older travelers prefer to travel lighter than most. They will select baggage that might not match but has served its purpose for many years on the road during their retirement years. These well-worn baggage selections have certain memories attached to them that are considered priceless and older travelers would hate to lose them in the baggage claim areas.
Younger travelers are not real concerned with the luggage choices that their parents make, but they are certainly concerned about the items that the carry-on luggage contains. Parents will place all types of toys into a travel bag in order to keep the child occupied during the airline flight and while they are waiting in airport terminals to board connecting flights. These baggage choices are just the right size to fit into the overhead storage compartment area that is over the seat and can be retrieved quite easily at any time during an airline flight.
Some people will select only one piece of baggage for an airline flight. They are probably traveling on a short weekend trip to see friends and family that they have not seen for a while. They might see travelers who are in the military and know from their baggage which service they are in. The garment bags for these travelers will typically have the emblem of the military service that they are emblazoned on the side of the bag. Navy people will have a green sea bag with them that contains enough clothing to carry them throughout their career.
